If there’s one thing we all dream about for our hair it’s that perfect shiny hair gloss look. What’s more stunning than glassy, reflective tresses that are luminous with healthy shine?! Ladies, it’s time to achieve that glossy hair look with Franck Provost Crows Nest’s dazzlingly easy hacks for the perfect glossy shine.
Perfect shiny hair with vitality starts in the shower! It’s best not to over-shampoo your hair and remove your hair’s natural oils, however, when it comes around to hair wash day make sure you’re using a shampoo and conditioner that is going to support your hairs needs, ensuring your hair will look as glossy as possible. The Kerastase Elixer Ultime Le Bain shampoo and Le Fondant Conditioner contains an opulent infusion of 5 essential oils that leave hair 6x shinier!
Ask your hairdresser to perform a hair analysis on you so they can prescribe you with the best shampoo and conditioner for you.
Get working on your shine from the inside out! Hair condition and gloss can be boosted by a well-balanced diet. The right vitamins and minerals can help your body produce beautifully healthy hair. Load up on superfoods like leafy greens, oily fish, nuts and seeds, and drink plenty of water.
If you’re not into eating all that healthy stuff then consider taking a vitamin supplement like vitamin C, Biotin and Iron.
Treat yourself to a luxurious in-salon treatment. Our Kerastase Fusio-Dose treatments are performed at the salon basin and are infused into your hair with a relaxing head massage. They give instant results that are long-lasting! The Fusio-Dose is a customisable treatment that has the capability to resolve a huge array of your hair concerns. Dry, limp, brittle, oily and dull hair are banished for up to 5 washes! Ask for your customised care shot to target hair radiance with the Brillance Booster for a remarkable hair shine.
Professional hair colour amplifies hair shine so why not make a bold colour statement with a permanent colour? The Loreal INOA has ammonia-free technology that protects the hair from damage. It boasts 6 weeks of intense hydration resulting in 50% more shine and light reflection when compared to non-coloured hair.
Semi-Gloss colours can enhance and subtly change your hair colour whilst adding crazy shine. Loreal DIA light is a lustrous semi-permanent gel- crème formulated with gentle acid technology which gently penetrates the hair fibre whilst the cationic polymers provide a resurfacing effect to the cuticle, creating the most stunning shiny results that last up to 6 weeks!
Not ready to make a commitment to hair colour? No worries! Ask your hairdresser for a clear gloss service. The same uber-glossy technology that’s in our Loreal DIA light glossing service comes in a colour free shade so you can keep your natural hair colour whilst dialling up the shine.
Are your highlights or your balayage looking a bit tired and dull? Over time, mineral deposits from water and products can start to muddy your beautiful blonde. Revive the shine with a 6 weekly toning service like our signature *DIAMOND* for example. Think of a toning service as like the final topcoat when having your nails done!
If there’s one thing that’s going to dim your hair’s shine it’s dry, damaged hair. If you’ve been going a bit hard on the bleaching, heat styling, back-combing or sun exposure then chances are you have a few split ends going on. Get yourself a fresh haircut and lop off those split ends to reveal healthy hair. Hair that is healthy with a smooth cuticle from root to tip will reflect light like a mirror for a gleaming shine!
What is this trickery?! How do we get your hair looking so shimmery and glazed after you visit the salon? It’s not magic…it’s just our years of experience and training! Let’s face it, when it comes to the ‘home blow-dry’ not all of us are whizzes. The coordination of the dryer, the brush and the backwards reflection in the mirror can be altogether a bit awkward resulting in a pretty poor blow-dry that’s looking frizzy and dull. Your hairdresser is positioned perfectly behind you, has got the brush/hair dryer coordination down-pat, has done hundreds if not thousands of blow-dries before and is a pro at blowing all of those cuticles smoothly into place for better light reflection – resulting in a stronger, shinier, longer lasting blow-dry. If you’ve got a special occasion coming up and want to dazzle everyone with your glossy hair then treat yourself to an in-salon blowdry.
Maintain your new founded glossiness with a hair mask at home. Take some ‘me time’ once a week and give your hair a little TLC. The Kerastase Ultime Hair Mask is ideal for dull hair seeking shine. It’s an intense restorative mask that penetrates hair to treat and restore strands back to silky smooth and shiny. Apply to the mid-lengths and ends of your freshly shampooed hair and leave on for 5-10 minutes or wrap your hair up in a towel and leave it on longer! Once you’re ready to rinse, be sure to rinse really well to remove excess product that hasn’t penetrated into your hair. Voila! Satiny, Polished locks…check!
